Challenges
Nowadays, urban parking systems depend on manual management and face many challenges, such as complex O&M and disordered billing, which greatly impairs user experience. To deal with these challenges, Huawei together with its partners launched the NB-IoT Smart Parking Solution (Details), to help construct competitive smart parking lots in terms of cloud-pipe-device integration. In the near future, the smart parking solution will penetrate into all areas of a city, changing the parking and operation styles of users and parking lot operators.
In a traditional parking system, parking devices collect data to determine whether there are vehicles in parking spaces, so the devices' processing logic is simple and has limited functionality. Compared with a traditional parking system, the smart parking solution greatly improves the vehicle parking capacity of an entire parking lot and supports service innovation. As a result, the smart parking solution loads higher requirements on smart parking devices:

Plug-and-play & ultra-long standby time

Smart parking devices are required to support simple installation and quick deployment without the need to route cables. Furthermore, smart parking devices should be able to continuously work over many years, and complete upgrades of firmware, algorithms, and apps without manual intervention.

Minimum cost

As the deployment scale of smart parking devices keeps on growing, the cost of a single device should be kept low to minimize the overall construction cost of a parking lot.apps without manual intervention.

Service innovation

Smart parking devices are required to support quick deployment of new sensors, sensing algorithms, and service features, so that the devices can provide innovative parking services, satisfy ever-increasing user requirements, and deliver a smarter service experience. apps without manual intervention.

Solution
Huawei LiteOS, as an IoT OS, provides support for the NB-IoT Smart Parking Solution. Specifically, Huawei LiteOS sets up a lightweight platform to reduce the cost and lengthen the standby time of smart parking devices. This achieves multi-sensor coordination through the smart sensing framework, enabling service innovation.
